Moscow Decorated for Christmas and New Year

00s

Moscow is finally decorated for the New Year. I can say that it is really cool this year! I can not think of another city in the world that has been so stylish and decorated for the holiday. Compared with last year, it has become more modern and more laconic. Previously, many of the streets were literally inundated with various light installations, and it was too much, and even these ridiculous houses, which didn’t always stylistically fit in with the overall design. This year Moscow is gorgeous! There is almost nothing to complain about! Yesterday I walked for three hours and had a great time!

 

As in the past, the main idea of ​​the design was to make a lot of light steel arches with patterns. Here is the arch in the entry to the Kamergersky.

Now here such garlands on the new lamps on Tverskaya street.

I wonder how much the design of each display cost? Now I understand why there are such prices in GUM!

    • Every single one of those workers are slave immigrant workers, who are paid a fraction of what a Russian worker gets, but the money allocated from the budget is the same. The difference is then pocketed by the managers from lowest foreman level up to the Mayor himself.
      So the more work like this is done, the more money is transferred illegally from the city budget to their pockets. That’s why there is so much of show-off like this in Moscow.

      • Wow, “Karlo” boy. So much “indignation”… I’m sure that when you saw the NY Christmas Tree, you were equally anguished and obsessed with the illegal Mexicans who decorated most of the city. I’m sure that’s the ONLY thing you could think of in the entire season…

        Oh, and Moscow looks great, even with your funny squeals.

  1. The City government is virtually unaccountable to anybody, so they can afford spending many times more money than any other comparable city in the world. The hallways in all apartment buildings look like in a zombie apocalypse (except for the gated communities), there are no washrooms or elevators in the subway stations, but they spend millions of dollars on Christmas lights. It’s hopeless.

    • …”spending many times more money than any other comparable city…”. Really, “Karlo” child? Such as…(??)
      And how much?

      …”hallways in all apartment buildings look like in a zombie apocalypse…”. Sorry, but Moscow looks (and is) much better than Detroit and many cities.

      Yes, Beatiful Moscow will always make you bitter and “hopeless” beyond imagination. We know that. Look at the first pics. And now, cry some more….

      —PS. Very beautiful pictures. Beautiful City. Thanks ER.
